The Chambers and Gallery of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Lokoja has been gutted by an early morning fire. The blaze ripped through the roof of the Chamber, destroying the floor of house.
The Speaker of the house, Mathew Kolawole, and the state security Adviser, Commander Jerry Omodara, were among the early callers at the assembly complex.
The Speaker of the Assembly said that he suspects sabotage but fell short of where the suspected sabotage might be from.
“We should leave security people to do their work and give us a report going forward,” the speaker said.
A source suspects that it was an explosion but couldn’t say who might be responsible.
